On tap at the Schooner Exact taproom.

This is a dark beer. I couldn't tell about the head because the SE folks served me a glass full to the brim ... if there was a head, they had poured it off. Good lacing once I had drunk a bit.

Smell and taste are both pretty roasty, even to the point of charring. The beer even had a bit of tartness to it, I thought, just a bit.

Body is thin.

Overall, this is a pretty average porter, perfectly OK and a decent representative of the style, but nothing to stand out from the pack.

A: dark. Deep brown to black. Held up to light you can see deep red to purple. Thin, brown head.
S: roasty. Chocolate.
T: roasty, chocolate malt, easy on the roasted barley and black patent. Balanced well.
M: a little too carbonated for a Porter, for me. Almost spritzy. Medium body, Halle Berry.
O: a great porter. Not too bold, but I like it like this. Would have rated higher if the carbonation was toned down a little.

Pours nearly black, with a couple fingers of beige head. Foamy lace. Some roasted malt aromas, light coffee, and a dry chocolate powder accentuates the nose. Taste dry, chocolaty, roast, sligh coffee bitterness, lightly sweet. Medium body, adequate carbonation, dry, easy drinking. Overall, a solid American porter.

On tap on a harbor cruise through Argosy Cruises in Seattle, WA.

This pours a thick looking dark black, with a small fluffy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like lactose, with chocolate, and slight roast.

The body on this is quite weird and really affects the flavor profile. It's simultaneously thick and fluffy but also thin and insubstantial. There's lots of lactose, with very light chocolate and roast.

This is kind of weird but not altogether unenjoyable.

22oz into an imperial pint glass. Pours a deep transparent brown w/ a big crackling khaki head that settles to a fluffy pillow of foam, some nice lacing.

Aroma is roasty, chocolatey, and bitter, but also a bit muddled.

Taste is likewise bitter and sharp, roasty. Coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt.

Mouthfeel is clean and balanced, maybe a little thin. More in the range of an English porter in terms of body. Smooth and velvety.

Overall a decent, drinkable porter but nothing superlative.
